New developments with the King of the North continue as Iran, Syria and Hezbollah draw closer to each other. commented that the Iranian Chief of Staff recently visited Syria where he was accompanied by his Syrian counter-part in what looked like a cozier and more unified swagger than the world has witnessed in recent year. According to, the two armies are now united as one.

Lest we think Isracast is embellishing, we should look at this Huffington Post article. According to Huffington Post, Bashar Assad is no more the real ruler of what is, even nominally, under his control; no more than 20 percent of his territory.

He is the messenger boy of the Iranian regime. His generals are subjected to the overall supreme orders of Kassem Suleimany, the chief commander of the Iranian Revolutionary guards, the actual High Commissioner of Syria. That is the sad truth for all those who still believe the rhetoric of the Assad regime. It is a fiction regime in a fiction state. Iran is now calling the shots, and that brings us back to the tragic end of the 52nd Brigade. It was an Iranian decision to remove the heavy armaments of the Brigade towards Damascus without battle, thus exposing the Alawite troops, deprived of their means of defense, to their inevitable fate. Hundreds of them were killed, many more injured, others imprisoned. The Alawite community cannot and will not be able to sustain this situation for too long. “Their” savior, Bashar Assad, is just a pawn on the drawing board of the Iranian planners. The Alawites fight for their life, the Iranians for the creation of the Sh’ite crescent. That is not the same.

That last statement should alarm all who read it. Nothing truer has been reported in the Middle East for decades. Iran is fighting to gain the Caliphate for the Shi’ites again. Three times, little horns of this Beast arose but were subjected to Sunni Islam very quickly. The total number of Caliphates so far is ten (10), a number that believers should recognize from Daniel’s and Revelation’s description of the Beast with ten horns. The next Caliphate is the one Iran is creating as I write this.

Dan 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
Dan 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

Dan 7:20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.

Dan 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

Rev 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

The seven heads, upon which Islam functions today, are the seven empires that have captured and occupied Israel and subjected YHVH’s people to them.

The fourth Beast of Daniel is the seventh Beast of Revelation. Daniel’s fourth Beast was the Roman Empire. It was the last empire to rule over the Jews before their final scattering into the earth until 1948. Daniel was shown four Beasts – Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome. John was shown seven Beasts – Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome and another Beast to follow.

“Beast” is a Biblical euphemism for empires that have captured and occupied Israel and subjected YHVH’s people to them. The four Beasts of Daniel were Edomite empires, the descendants of Jacob’s evil brother Esau, who have carried their grudge against Jacob and his descendants to this day – almost 4,000 years – in their effort to retrieve the birthright Esau sold to Jacob for a bowl of red lentil soup.

John’s seventh Beast is partly of Roman origin, but it took on a life of its own. The last Caliphate, the Ottoman Empire, was dismantled in the 1920s. But John prophesies that an eighth Beast will arise that is just like the seventh. The eighth Beast will be Islamic, but not just any kind of Islam. This Beast will be a Shi’ite Beast, not a Sunni one.

The King of the North – 4+1 coalition – is routing ISIS, scattering them into the rest of the earth, but securing for themselves their new found stronghold in the Middle East. Obama’s creation of ISIS has now backfired. It became Iran’s wide open back door into the desire of the Persian hearts to rule the earth by allying with the only other Shia-ruled nations on earth, Syria and Iraq.

Iran and Syria are joined by Iraq and Hezbollah in the coalition to bring forth the next Caliphate.

The recent takeover of Kirkuk by the Iranian backed militias and Iraqi army clearly illustrates that now Iran is calling the shots in every important decision of Iraq. This whole operation and withdrawal of PUK Peshmerga, without resistance to advancing Iraqi forces was planned by Iran Quds force commander Major General Qassem Soleimani. The extent of involvement by the Iraq Prime Minister’s office in this whole episode is still unclear, but one thing is certain — decisions were made in Tehran and Baghdad.

Iran has poured money, infrastructure and other deals into Syria, Iraq and Hezbollah. Even worse, Hamas and Iran have renewed ties, as well.

Salah al-Aruri, the deputy head of Hamas’s political bureau and a sanctioned terrorist, visited Tehran, where he led a high-ranking Hamas delegation discussing the Hamas-Fatah reconciliation deal with Iranian leaders.

“We have come (to Iran) to show that differences are now history. We have made a major agreement not to allow the differences leave negative impact on our bilateral ties in a bid to enable ourselves leave obstacles behind,” Aruri said in an interview with the Iranian media on Tuesday, as quoted by the semiofficial Iranian Fars news agency.

“Our relations with Iran don’t harm any other governments, including Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and others,” he added.

“We will welcome any of these nations or governments which supports our cause and our nation,” stressed Aruri.

The visit of the Hamas delegation to Iran appears to mark the end of the disconnect between the sides, which began when Hamas refused to support Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, a close ally of Iran’s, in the uprising against him. An angry Iran then reportedly stopped supplying the terror group with weapons.

With this renewal, Israel now has Persian enemies outside and inside its borders.
